The show will broadcast of Colors TV from 15th March. It is based on a story of two sisters, Tejo and Jamine from Punjab. The role of Tejo is played by Priyanka Chaudhary and Isha Malviya plays the role of Jasmine. One of the sisters, Jasmine is all excited to go to Canada and the other one, Tejo is attached to her hometown in Punjab. Whereas, Fateh is in love with Jasmine and does not know how to confess her feelings.
For the promotion of the show, she came for a press conference in Chandigarh on Friday. The cast of the show was present there along with her.
Producer Sargun Mehta, Dreamiyata Entertainment, said, “After a successful innings as actors, both Ravi and I are thrilled to give flight to our little dream of turning producers and we couldn’t have asked for a better show than Udaariyan to turn that into a reality. It is a very special feeling as we having been putting our heart and soul into this project for months and it is finally coming to fruition. We have worked very hard to create some really amazing characters and are now glad that the viewers will get to witness them.”
Ravi Dubey, Sargun`s partner said, “Udaariyaan is a story from the heartland of Punjab about how a family’s unceasing desire to migrate to Canada that charts the course of their destiny. Tejo, Jasmine and Fateh are all very interesting characters and their journeys are sure to captivate the viewers. I would credit Sargun for breathing life into Udaariyaan and for doing an incredible job that we both are proud of. Over the years, Sargun and I have received a lot of love from the audience and I hope they will also support us in this new role.”
Ankit Gupta who will be seen portraying the role of Fateh, said, “Fateh’s character is extremely interesting. He is a boxer by profession who is tough on the outside but complete romantic at heart. He harbors feelings for Jasmine and can go to any extent to win over her. To get into the skin of the character, I had to build physique and look fit and also brush up my Punjabi dialect. It is my first show as a lead and I would like to thank COLORS, Ravi Dubey and Sargun Mehta for making me a part of Udaariyaan and there couldn’t have been a better role to set out on this amazing journey.”
Priyanka Choudhary who will be seen as Tejo said, “Tejo is a simple and rooted girl who has her head on her shoulders and loves her family. She is stark opposite of her sister Jasmine and wants to continue living Punjab unlike others. I instantly fell in love with the character and have been working hard towards doing justice to it. I feel great to be associated with Udaariyaan and for working with COLORS once again. I am hopeful that with the show, we are able to achieve many feats and entertain our audiences.
Isha Mavliya who will be seen making her television debut as Jasmine, said, “This is a dream debut for me. Working with producers Ravi and Sargun on a show that will air on COLORS is truly a blessing for any actor and I couldn’t have asked for more! With an immensely relatable storyline, rich characters and a fabulous concept, Udaariyaan is sure to delight the viewers. I can relate with my character Jasmine who is quirky, ambitious and not afraid to get what she wants. Her fun-loving nature is sure to win hearts and I am extremely excited for the audience to meet Jasmine and be a part of her story!”
